Assent refers to the act of expressing agreement or acceptance. In legal terms, assent typically refers to the agreement of a party to a contract or other legally binding agreement. It can also refer to the agreement of a minor, who is legally unable to enter into a contract, to be bound by the terms of the agreement with the understanding that they can disaffirm the contract upon reaching the age of majority. In a legal context, assent may be expressed through a signature, verbal agreement, or other means of indicating agreement to the terms of an agreement.
